Video: meet the east London joint that made vegan food cool

Tom Howells

Vegan food is having more than a moment in London. You can barely move for decent restaurants plugging plant-based menus, from kick-ass high-end joints like Nama and Essence, to upstart spots like vegan fried chicken pioneers Temple of Hackney or Club Mexicana (now settled in at the Spread Eagle pub).

Cook Daily’s one of the best of ‘em: an unpretentious international vegan café in Shoreditch Boxpark, doing low-cost, high-flavour Southeast Asian-inspired bowls rammed with rainbow veg and slathered in banging ‘high grade’ sauces. Whet your appetite with our video introduction to King Cook’s delicious domain above.

Cult Eats is a ’thing’ we’re doing now, ya hear? Check out our previous micro-profile on awesome Ealing/Fitzrovia pizza place Santa Maria.
